Michael Jackson Doctor

Loses $10,000 Jacket Battle

With MJ Estate

8/17/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817_arnie_mj_EX
Dr. Arnie Klein's got some fall shopping to catch up on in Beverly Hills -- because TMZ has learned, the Michael Jackson estate just REJECTED the good doc's claim to return his old, $10,000 jacket.

TMZ broke the story -- Klein says he loaned Michael Jackson a $10,000 Gianfranco Ferre jacket before the singer died, but MJ never returned it.

Klein filed a claim against Michael's estate back in February 2010 to get it back -- and yesterday, the estate finally got around to giving him an answer ... go fly a kite.

But the estate didn't just tell Arnie to buzz off -- according to the legal docs, the estate also rejected a former lawyer's $3 million bill, an old accountant's $60,000 bill ... plus an additional $354,230 in other claims.

That said, it's not the end of the road for Arnie or MJ's other creditors -- they can still sue the estate in court. But it's unclear if that's what Arnie and co. plan to do.

Aston: Well, much as I dislike Klein, why can't he have his jacket back? Odd.
----------------------------------------
Maybe, after all the auctions of MJ memorabilia, they realise that this jacket could now fetch way beyond its original value. It was shocking how much MJs stuff went for.
Maybe they were a bit disgusted in having to pay Klein $50k+ for his work in the last 3 months of Michaels life, and decided that allowing him to make such a profit on the jacket was taking the p.

It1s clearly NOT the same jacket.

Look at the center of the crest:
In the middle Klein`s has only 1 letter...appears to be a G.
Michael`s one has 3 letters...TGF or something.

Klein is obviously lying.

If it's his then they are douches! They have done a bunch of things that have looked very bad to me. So maybe I lean towards them being at fault but I don't have all the facts.

They want to sue everyone for every penny out there but will not shell out a dime in return. Oh the irony.

Not only is Dr. Klein NOT the father of Prince, he should be investigated for HIS ROLE in Michael's MURDER. Did he drug him to control because if you view Michael the last few weeks he looked like someone under a spell or mind control. He was zombie like when you view photos of MJ leaving his clinic. WHAT DID HE DO???

Arnie Klein is NOT the father to Prince Michael. Michael is the BIOLOGICAL FATHER TO ALL OF HIS KIDS, PRINCE PARIS AND BLANKET. This is one of those situations where YOU TELL A LIE long enough you begin to believe it. THAT'S A LIE. Here's the PROOF MJ IS THE DADDY!!!

I look at prince michael and the older he gets the more he looks like micheal he doesn't look anything like Klein nothing matches they look like two completely different people when u put their photo side by side different noses , different eyes shapes even the their faces shapes are different his not event built like Klein . Klein is short and wide, prince is tall and a little buff like mike was and yes height and body size is genetic .that's a shame the media cooked up a bogus rumor like this what people think doesn't matter but the media is very much to blame for this slanderous rumor and having a fat greedy two face backing stabbing friend who will say anything for a buck and attention doesn't make it any better .

.....vs-loaning Micheal the jacket after he died? Clearly Arnie is much younger in the photo. Micheal looks younger and heavier. the crest/emblem on the jacket looks similar but different..........reject is right.......i bet the estate knows the jackets are not one in the same.......tmz is failing to report that portion of the story (jmo).

if you gave mj a dollar for each useless friend, doctor or cosmetic doctor/dermatologist, mj would be the richest ever.
i can't believe the moron fanatics considered liz taylor a friend after she told him to get useless drug rehab, and cosmetic injections from klein. after all her pills, alcohol and quickie weddings, she still had the nerve to act like his savior and an eternal child.
funny how she pretended she never saw anything wrong with both mj and klein before klein mentioned the gay word.
embarrassing for a 'poor frail sexy heroine'.

there were continuous medical problems resulting from
mj's injuries, and nose and skin procedures performed by Hoefflin and Klein. he couldn't understand that hospital drugs and Restylane nose injections couldn't restore his health and deformed face.
a nose transplant was the only good option after what mj did to himself. he clearly was abusing himself and in 2009, bribed a drug dealer so he could defraud the pharmacy for Propofol. katherine and his siblings can deny it all. they were the ones who begged for tii and jackson 5 concerts in 2009. mj admitted to tmz that he agreed with his brothers to reunite in concert.

It's a jacket. JUST GIVE IT BACK. This is so stupid. I love you Michael, you did wear the jacket better than Arnie did, but it's JUST a jacket. Who cares that it costs 10,000? Giving it back is just... it was the Doc's jacket in the FIRST PLACE. It's not like it's sentimental or anything. Michael didn't fall in love or die or something while wearing it! GOSH.
